Library Lawn


The stage will be set up directly in front of the library, with the lawn between the Library and Tschoepe Hall as the seating area. There will be plenty of seating for family, friends and invited guests. Tickets will not be used, except in the event of rain. Each graduate will be given 8 “rain tickets,”,which will be used if the ceremony is moved to Memorial Gym due to inclement weather. More information will be sent out regarding rain plans as we get closer and as needed. We ask that ticket holders be seated by 6:50 p.m. after which time seating will be opened up to non-ticket holders until capacity is reached. The ceremony will be live streamed online. In the event of rain, a large screen will be set up in the Alumni Student Center for overflow attendees to view the ceremony.

Graduation Accessories

Announcements, caps, gowns, and tassels are available at the TLU Bookstore in the Alumni Student Center beginning Monday, March 23. Call, drop by, or visit MyTLU for more information.
